August EOM Wrap Up

I read 9 1/2 books in August. This hits my goal of 2 per week, but was much slower than my last couple of months. Probably due to reading two longer, slower books this month.

Deeper We Fall (Fall and Rise, # 1) by Chelsea M Cameron
Frigid (Frigid, # 1) by J Lynn (review coming soon)
Erasing Hell: What God Said About Eternity, and the Things We've Made Up by Francis Chan and Steve (review coming soon)
Pandemonium (Delirium, # 2) by Lauren Oliver (review coming soon)
The Infinite Moment of Us by Lauren Myracle
The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle, # 2) by Maggie Stiefvater (review coming soon)
Where She Went (If I Stay, # 2) by Gayle Forman (review coming soon)
Parasite (Parasitology, # 1) by Mira Grant (review coming soon)
Consume (The Clann, # 3) by Melissa Darnell (review coming soon)
Free Four (Divergent, # 1.5) by Veronica Roth (review coming soon?)

I've reviewed 10 books:

Saving Wishes (The Wishes Series, # 1) by GJ Walker-Smith
If I Stay (If I Stay, # 1) by Gayle Forman
The Edge of Never (The Edge of Never, # 1) by JA Redmerski
Deeper We Fall (Fall and Rise, # 1) by Chelsea M Cameron
Heartless (Tales of Goldstone Wood, # 1) by Anne Elisabeth Stengl
City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, # 1) by Cassandra Clare
Delirium (Delirium, # 1) by Lauren Oliver
Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein
Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, # 1) by Leigh Bardugo

That's it for my August 2013. How was yours?


  1. Love Lauren Olivers' books!
    Happy September reading!

  2. Oh yes, I completely agree! Thanks and thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  3. Oooh great, great books! Hope you enjoyed them! Can't wait to see your reviews!

  4. Looks like you read a lot of great books and 10 reviews is pretty good going a well. I didn't do so well this August - only 6 books read!

  5. Thanks Sally! August was definitely not my best reading month. But I finished one and a half more right there at the end so that made me feel a little better! My SNL didn't have the best reading month this month either. Maybe it's just an August thing?

  6. Wow, so many goodies! I have had Erasing Hell on my kindle for over a year but haven't opened it. I can't believe you read and reviewed so many books. I get to the end of the month and get frustrated at how few books I actually reviewed.

  7. If you've read any of Francis Chan's other books then I think you'll enjoy Erasing Hell. It was more academic than some of his other books though. But it definitely had an impact on me. I've gradually increased the number of books I read and review each month. But it really has been gradual. I promise! :) Thanks for stopping by!
